I turned on my 10-250 today to find that the I have no audio output and the video output is completely garbled. First it was just a sea of colors flickering in random patterns and then finally I could almost make our the menu for the Now Playing List, but the unit doesn't seem to respond to the remote control either. I am using component connections, not HDMI.
It seems like a total meltdown but before I over-react, is there anything I should try before calling DirecTV?
If I can't solve the problem, do I simply call DirecTV for a replacement or is there any better way? My unit is about 6 months old.
Sorry to be such a newbie, but if I bought it at Best Buy, do I still get the replacement from DirecTV and do I need to provide my receipt or do they just go by when you initiatied service on the unit?
The unit should be returned to BestBuy, Yes a receipt would be wise to bring. Oh and if they conned you into an extended warranty then you are all set, although it should be covered by the factory warranty at 6 months. If you modified it in any way then un-do the mods.
